[Live-demo] 2.0.3 testing

Hamish, I think this is a good idea, in particular being able to create 
a freeze of a build scripts so that it can be reproduced later.

I suggest going one step further.
Our build process starts by downloading everything from 
livedvd/gisvm/trunk/ and get we use wget to get files out of svn during 
the build process.
What I suggest is that we:
1. Instead of sourcing files by "wget -c 
http://svn.osgeo.org/livedvd/gisvm/trunk/dir/file" we should source the 
file from the version we have already downloaded which is currently at: 
"~/gisvm/trunk/bin/../dir/file".  We can rename the gisvm svn directory 
so that it is one below trunk, which will make scripts easier to run.

I suggest that we start making use of the tags directory. So that I can 
check out the 2.0.3. At times it is important to distinguish between 
2.0.3 and 2.0.4 if there are users for both version. This is more 
important than using the branch directory. In fact, I suspect that we 
will avoid the need to use the branch directory for the most part, 
unless we decide to create an "unstable" build list and a "stable" build 

2. I suggest that we store a copy of the /tmp download directory. Some 
projects are likely to move their download source location, and if they 
do, then it will be hard for us to reproduce an old release.
